“My darling 6-year-old niece Grace Ross passed away yesterday,” the fundraiser stated. “She is now an angel in heaven.” Michelle Ross, Grace’s mother, said of her daughter at the vigil, “Grace was loved by everybody and she was friends with everybody”, according to the South Bend Tribune. “She would go up to a stranger on the street and be like, ‘Hi, I’m Grace and I’m six.”
Tara Bush, the principal of Olive Elementary School, which Grace attended said although there were many students who came and went, she knew Grace from day one. She said that her student’s smile showed even on her mask. “You could tell she was smiling all the time,” she said.
